Eighteen projects designed to improve water quality in the Okanagan have been awarded $300,000 in taxpayer funding.

In Kelowna, one of the initiatives aims to return long sections of Mission Creek to a more natural course.

The project, which received a grant of $25,000, is said to have beneficial effects that include flood prevention, habitat restoration, improved water quality and better sediment control.

Money for the grants comes from taxpayers in each Okanagan regional district. The allocation is done by the Okanagan Basin Water Board.
